Abstract

Many of the fluid milk processing plants in Utah are relatively small. The typical small plant in Utah is generally family operated with some hired help. Although most of the small plants are individually owned, some are operated as partnerships. Often the same man picks-up, processes, and then delivers the milk. Some of the processors also own dairy herds. In these cases, the same man performs all the functions necessary to carry the milk products from the farm to the consumer's door. It is not uncommon to find the plant owner and manager performing all these duties himself.
